Ethan had his first Blue and Gold dinner for cub scouts tonight. He was mad when I told him that the other kids and I were going too, then Daddy showed up and we went as a family and Ethan was ok with that then. We got there and picked a table to sit at, and when Ethan’s friend Jacob arrived he came over to tell Ethan that he looks great in his uniform. We had dinner, and then they started passing out awards for the boys achievements. The very first boy called was Ethan. He had earned his bobcat. So Ethan went up there to claim that, then they asked for Ethan’s mother to come up. I was NOT expecting that. I was handed a pin and I was like what do I do with this? Sis Ball happened to be sitting at a table nearby and said it was for me, and that Ethan was supposed to pin it on me. Talk about being totally embarrassed. I am not one that likes being in the spotlight. Especially when I have no idea what I’m supposed to be doing there. I handed Ethan the pin and told him to pin it on my shirt and he just looked at me like “what?” But he pressed it to my shirt and I finished pinning it on for him.
So here I am after being pinned looking embarrassed, but glad that that was over.
And here’s Ethan with his new patch for his uniform, now I get to figure out where it goes and put it on. (Yes Ethan did go up in front of everyone with food on his face….) And now it’s time to start working with him on some of his wolf requirements. 🙂
